Nigeria’s headline inflation rises to 13.71% in September

Nigeria’s headline inflation for the month of September recorded a 49-basis point rise to 13.71 per cent year-on-year, compared to the 13.22 per cent recorded in August. Food inflation increased for the 14th consecutive month to 16.66 per cent year-on-year. Financial Derivatives say Nigeria’s upward inflationary pressures are exerted by a string of factors compounded by the electricity tariff hike, currency weakness and forex scarcity.
